Back in December 2018, PQube revealed a delay for the console version of Song of Memories. Now, the company has taken to Twitter to discuss certain choices that have been made during the localization process for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. It noted that the Western and Japanese versions will be identical "content-wise," but a few alterations have been made.
PQube noted two localization choices, which it said were made for age rating boards (like the ESRB) and not console companies (like Sony). Characters’ ages will not be mentioned in the console versions and the school will be referred to as an "academy" throughout the game.
Here is PQube’s official tweet making the statement.
Content-wise the game is the same as the Japanese version, in terms of localisation, ages have been removed from the characters, and the term School has been changed to Academy. This was to placate age rating boards and has nothing to do with recent platform holder changes.
